Omega-3 fatty acids may be associated with many different health benefits.
From lowering cholesterol to improved blood sugar control, omega-3 fatty acids may be the MOST important nutrient you need to include in your daily routine.
Now, there may be another feather in omega-3’s proverbial cap.
For people with increased risk factors for developing chronic disease, omega-3 fatty acids may prevent or decrease your risk factors.
Granted, there are factors that you can’t control.
Family history, gender, and age are all risk factors that you are UNABLE to change.
However, conditions like physical activity, diet, and weight loss are risks that you CAN control.
Controlling your weight may significantly decrease your risk for developing chronic diseases.
Being overweight by as little as 10, 20 or even 30 pounds, may lead to significant metabolic damage to the cells of your body.
And this weight may significantly increase inflammation.
Inflammation may be the start of many chronic diseases.
However, omega-3 fatty acids may be a POWERFUL nutrient to include in your diet.
Give me a minute to explain…
Omega-3 Fat and Low Calories Diets
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that your body is unable to make.
So including food rich in omega-3 fatty acids or a high quality krill oil supplement, may increase your circulating DHA and EPA levels.
There is a growing body of evidence that omega-3 fatty acids may increase FAT LOSS.
Powerful antioxidants, such as Astaxanthin, may reduce inflammation and possibly lead to weight loss.
Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA and EPA, may INCREASE fat loss in all individuals, even if you have just a few pounds to lose..
Researchers aimed to see how effective omega fatty acids are in reducing weight and improving lipid profiles.
They recruited 32 obese participants and prescribed a very low calorie diet, and either a placebo or an omega-3 supplement.
The results were AMAZING!
The first 4 weeks, the participants were on a very low calorie diet, and the remaining 10 weeks they were on a weight maintenance diet.
At the end of 4 weeks, the placebo group lost 6.54 kg while the omega-3 group lost 6.87 kg.
At the end of 10 weeks, they were measured again.
The placebo group lost an additional 1.57 kg while the omega-3 group lost another 1.69 kg.
Seems pretty insignificant, right?
Both groups improved their metabolic profiles, but only in the omega-3 group, was there a loss of BODY FAT, more than the placebo group.
The TRUTH About Omega-3 and Weight Loss
Being overweight by as little as 10, 20 or even 30 pounds may increase inflammation and lead to significant metabolic changes.
This inflammation may increase your risk for developing chronic diseases, mostly heart disease.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been known to promote better heart health, better blood sugar control, and even FAT LOSS.
Including omega-3 fatty acids and a healthy diet, may promote weight loss and FAT LOSS.
The use of ultra-potent Krill oil may increase your omega-3 fatty acid intake.
And this may increase fat loss and promote a healthier metabolic profile.
Don’t you owe it to yourself and your health?
